Containing both her single 'Colors' and her English version of Hikari (light), this single was launched in Japan and with good reception. Featured in both the U.S and European publications of the OST, Utada has began to invade the west.
In October last year Hikaru released her first album directly into the United States, Exodus. Crazed fans began spamming websites in an effort to sell her here, and she's ranked #8,051 on Amazon's music lists. So while not being grouped with the most popular artists such as Neil Young, Madonna or Dolly Parton, (in the top 25 at the time of writing) she has made herself an image over here.
